So you've decided that you want to teach English as a foreign language (TEFL)! You are about to embark on a journey and an adventure. TEFL certification means you can work as a respected professional in nearly every country of the world in a capacity that allows you to truly experience the local culture and meet people from all walks of life.

With the IH Montañita CELTA, you've made a good choice. We have been offereing the CELTA in Ecuador since 2008. We began offering the CELTA in Guayaquil as a part time course for local teachers stretching over 9 weeks. However, we soon found that there was considerable interest from applicants from abroad. We took stock, revised our approach and in 2010 we launched our five week (160 hour) residential course at a rented hostel on the beach.  Our objective from the start has been to provide an unparalleled learning experience. We commissioned Jaem Heath O’Ryan to design a course timetable that would incorporate features to improve your performance and achievement on the CELTA. At the end of 2012 we re-located to our own purpose built venue just round the corner from the first place.  Our reputation is growing and we are now receiving about 25% of our applicants through referral from previous graduates.

The design of our CELTA courses has resulted in excellent quality assessments from Cambridge University and the highest level of achievement for our teachers in training. Our CELTA alumni are employed in universities, top-rank language academies, international schools, and international humanitarian organisations throughout Latin America and worldwide. We receive regular requests from organisations throughout the Andean region which are looking for teachers.

Our Trainers have global experience and a global cross-cultural perspective as well as the latest proven teaching methodologies.

Our CELTA courses are held regularly throughout the year. Check our dates or ask for more information. Course fees are still frozen at only US$2195.00. Remember that this price is all inclusive! You only need to add the cost of your flights.
